Belong to MeWhenever I read one of Marisa e los Santos novels I just want to reach out and shake her and ask her WHY ARE YOU NOT WRITING POETRY ALREADY since Lots of Mommies de los Santos writing style is flowery andrawn out Her novels are filled with situations that should only take a few pages to write but the author freuently takes her sweet time just escribing situations that her characters get into or the characters thought process to the readers often times wasting time to stop and explain some random etail that pops into the character s head at randomBelong to Me is a much better novel than the first novel in the author s Cornelia Brown series which is Love Walked In Belong To Me had the makings of an intriguing novel thanks to there being long lost lovers children who needed to have their paternity tested love triangles and newlyweds celebrating the arrival of their first child Yet Fantasy Man de los Santos had her main character Cornelia wax poetic one too many times for my taste causing the story to go from 5 starsown to 354 starsCornelia s character is a serious motormouth She freuently speaks in a contrived way that makes you want to infiltrate the novel and have a one on one talk with her explaining how in the real world NOBODY else would tolerate flowery The Flame Of Adventure dialogues because normal people will cut you off two minutes into your monologue about your loving of random pastaishes Not to mention this character is beyond nice in an irritating way that makes you feel interchangeably bad for her when others tell her off and slightly gleeful that someone actually said the things you were thinking about herThe pacing of this novel is a tad too slow and a good 100 pages could have been trimmed off the novel s framework but as a whole the novel is efinitely worth reading Nevertheless I would caution readers to have extreme patience with Cornelia I had bought both books together not knowing much about them I idn t even realize they were connected was actually afraid I had bought a collection of poetry by mistake so I am happy I read them in the right order This seuel is better than the first in a lot of ways the characters have edge the plot is less predictable While the premise city girl moves to suburbs insert cliched snarky lines about soccer moms in their SUVS baking muffins for the new neighbor while gossiping about her behind her back is not in any way original it was nice to at least meet some mean people in Divine Magnetic Lands de los Santos Sweet Valley world However this was another case of overblown characters villains and heroes wellefined and what really annoyed me was her perpetuating her own weakness as in heroine is looking forward to an evening with a friend but hastens to add ont get me wrong I love my husband with all my heart and soul and cherish every moment with him I just needed some girl time It s ok Marisa we weren t about to call in a relationship specialist or lose starry eyed love for your perfect man and woman with their perfect marriage as is affirmed by every character who meets them in fact Not Only Is It Normal only is it normal her

To Disentangle Herself From 
disentangle herself from unbelievably you got that right good looking husband but it would actually be refreshing if they existed in any mode other than inhumanly perfect and while they o hit a rather large bump it s still encased in plastic for the most part and seems removed from reality However while the junior high maturity factor of every good character going to an ivy league while bad characters The Butterfly Club do not and all that was super irritating I STILL really enjoyed reading it for its well paced and high uality talent as far as overall narrative andialogue goes In this book she Lilith Enraptured (Divinity Warriors does pull a lot of that Piccoult stuff that I cannot stand setting the scene up to end with that perfect last line or clincher moment or whatever but if you can roll your eyes past it it s a very enjoyable Shabbos afternoon read 275 Stars for Belong to Me audiobook by Marisae los Santos read by Julia Gibson I His Substitute Bride (Seavers Brides, don t think I m the target audience for this book I just couldn t connect with any of the characters I fell in love with BELONG TO ME This novel is so beautifully written and the character are so wonderfullyescribed I felt I knew them Only after I finished reading Tu Alma ¿La Conoces? did Iiscover that th 3 A charming comfort read A great.
